Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I have calculated it to 12*.075=1.5micrograms= 12 tablets and as for part B. My answer is this "I am not a doctor so I would not know if it is safe or correct". I don't want t seem harsh but they ask some strange questions.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I am sorry the answer should be 20 tablets at 0.075. Is this correct? I divided the 1.5mg by the 0.75mcg=20 tablets. When I multiplied the 12*.075 I got .90 and that is incorrect. Did I solve this correctly? Thank you so much for your help!
